Perfect Nursery Gifts for William & Kate
Amanda Scacchetti and Olivia Robinson are carrying on family tradition, continuing the business their parents David and Luisa started in 1981 when they couldn't find stylish baby products in the U.K. As the creative force behind Great Britain's popular nursery brand by the same name, the sisters hand-picked items that Will and Kate, or any modern-day parents, would covet for their firstborn. Read on to see their recommendations!
Buy It Now: Silver-Plated Rattle
"A silver-plated rattle is the perfect way to commemorate a child's birth, especially the royal baby's. It is a memento that will remind Will and Kate through the years of this memorable time," says Olivia.
STOKKE BOUNCE 'N' SLEEP
Buy It Now: Stokke Bounce 'N' Sleep
"The Stokke Bounce 'n' Sleep has become very popular in the U.K. in recent years since parents are looking for a convenient option for keeping baby comfortable and secure throughout the day. Kate can place baby in the comfy bouncer for playtime and when naptime rolls around, simply recline the bouncer to its sleep position without waking him or her," says Amanda.
Buy It Now: Knitted Gingerbread Blanket
"The supersoft, knitted Gingerbread Blanket is one of our best-sellers and is frequently given as a new baby gift. Both baby and Kate will love the comfort this blanket provides. It is the perfect pram accessory for strolls," says Olivia.
GULLIVER ROCKING HORSE
Buy It Now: Gulliver Rocking Horse
"Rocking horses are a traditional gift for British children," says Amanda. "Our Gulliver Rocking Horse is the perfect 'first' horse for the royal baby; it can be used as a rocker or Will and Kate can push it on its wheels."
SOPHIE THE GIRAFFE
Buy It Now: Sophie the Giraffe
"Sophie is a must-have for the royal baby. She just celebrated her 50th birthday and it's no surprise that Sophie has lasted the test of time since all babies love this teething toy. A word of advice for Kate – get a few in case you misplace one!" suggests Olivia.
Buy It Now: Urbo Stroller
"It's been reported that Kate has purchased a Bugaboo stroller, but if she is like other mums in the U.K., she is likely to select a second stroller. Most families typically have one stroller that is a traditional pram and another that is more practical for urban environments, like our Urbo stroller. It's more compact, lightweight and can be easily navigated, which will come in handy with all of Kate's traveling throughout the London streets," says Amanda.
Husband and wife team Alex Theophanous and Alexa Till are also the founders of AlexandAlexa.com, a British e-boutique described by The Independent UK as "Net-a-Porter for under-14-year-olds." So it made perfect sense for the duo to weigh in on high-end registry items that would dazzle first-time parents William and Kate and keep the royal little one swaddled in comfort befitting a little prince or princess.
